Di Bawah Pengaruh Schubert – Piano Trio in E flat, D. 929, II. Andante con moto [Prosa Si Majnun]

Andante ini… yang mengusik seganasnya. Ditekan dan dihempas sedalamnya. Jiwa saya…jiwa saya dicarik-marik, dihambat penceritaannya. Andante ini…ia mengikis dan menghakis segala yang melitupi…yang lindung jiwa saya. Ia jadi…jadi tak ampuh serang..yang bertalu ditikam..sedalam-dalamnya. Andante ini…ia..ia..tanpa belas kasihan mengheret kesedaran dari lelap, menghumban terus di dataran nyata. Kini…kini saya tak daya..sehingga habis waktu, sampai berakhir lagu. Andante ini..akhirnya..akhirnya.

“It’s being aware of what it means to lose oneself before being completely abandoned.” – Schumann’s Fantasia in C Major

Have you read Adorno on Schumann’s Fantasia in C Major? He talks of his twilight. It’s not Schumann bereft of reason, but just before. A fraction before. He knows he’s losing his mind. It torments him but he clings on one last time. It’s being aware of what it means to lose oneself before being completely abandoned.” – The Piano Teacher, 2001 (dir. Michael Haneke)

The Fantasie in C major, Op. 17, was written by Robert Schumann in 1836. It was revised prior to publication in 1839, when it was dedicated to Franz Liszt. It is generally described as one of Schumann’s greatest works for solo piano, and is one of the central works of the early Romantic period. It is often called by the Italian version, Fantasia; the word “Fantasie” is the German spelling.
